of people would say that's a a understatement. problems still plaguing the obama website but health care and the internet are working together in the private sector. these doctors posting their prices on personal websites for health services. patients say it works great. so is this proof the private sector does a heck of a lot better job than the government does? hi, everybody. welcome. let's go in focus with john, rich, elizabeth mcdonald, mike, rick, and sabrina schaeffer. so, john, government can't do the health care on the internet but the private sector obviously can. >> of course it can. capitalism in the profit mode are ability turning scarcity into abundance. they're about turning a million dollar computer in the '70s into something that costs a couple hundred dollars today. health care is expensive and scarce today precisely because the government has naively removed the profit motor from the equation. president obama wants to make it universal and in trying to make it universal he's going to make it very hard for the average person to get. >> so, rick, this just proves the fact

taking the fall for the website dubbed health care.gov on its rocky debut. the obama care website has been touted as a gateway to overhauling the nation's health care giving uninsured americans health coverage. but it's proving to be not so affordable. what's the fallout for the president at a time when americans feel betrayed or misled by his promises tied to obama care? his approval ratings, for example, are taking a big hit and some in the white house worry that there will be consequences for a president playing defense who repeatedly says he simply wasn't aware there would be problems that would ultimately lead to a disastrous rollout. joining us now, fox news host, governor mike huckabee, who is here to offer his perspective. governor, great to have you. let me ask you first, what we're seeing is a law designed to cover the uninsured. it's now booting far more people off their insurance plans than it can sign up. right now, on the nonfunctioning insurance exchanges. governor, the longer this goes on, what does this do to the president who can't distance himself from a law he set
it is the noro virus. >>> it is one month after the launch of the obama care website and the number of people enrolled has been disappointing. congress releasing documents today showing problems with the site. it only allowed six people to enroll on the first day and 242 on the second day. now critics are pointing out another issue. they claim the affordable health care act is cancelling current policies. >> people are tired of politicians like the president making promises they can't keep. >> so many people have had crummy plans that didn't give them mental health services. all that goes away on january 1st. >> we have learned as many as 11 million people will receive cancellation letters. their current plan lacks minimum benefit standards set by the afford health care act. >>> new information out today shows nurses are as good as doctors. researchers say nurses and midwives can do as good of a job as doctors and patients often like them better. nurses are especially good at delivering babies and treating patients with chronic diseases. there is a doctor shortage and nurses are more affordab
care plan system vastly greater than those signing up in the obama health care website there is a problem. dan coates challenged the president that people can cope their health care if they like it. >> tell that to the people in florida who received cancellation notices and 1 million californians that may see health insurance plans disappear and tell that to the tens of hoosiers in my state that see similar notices a ratifying in their mail boxes. >> even if the his honor company drops a plan they have to offer comprehensive plans that meet obama care standards. nlaw makers learned that we would have to wait until the middle of the month and now they came out and they are very low numbers. what is the white house saying today? >> only six people signed up for obama the first day the website went live according to documents released to the house over sight committee and only 248 people enrolled by the day two. the obama administration needs 39,000 people a day to make it work. the white house said those are rough figures. and white house secretary said enrollment will li
. >>> an embarrassing start to obama care. we now know on the day the obama website launched six users successfully enrolled. >> and on day two, the number got better, but 248 signed up. but compare that to the millions of americans without health insurance. >> lori segal is following this story. lori, a huge part of the problem is this website. what is being done to fix it? >> reporter: absolutely. we heard president obama essentially say we're going to bring in the tech, the best and the brightest folks. and now we know. they're saying silicon valley to the rescue, brought in engineers from oracle, google, red hatd, and one of the guy, michael dickerson, an engineer at google for seven year, a site reliability engineer nonetheless. what these folks are going to do is try to help with three things. reliability, stability, and scalability. so being able to fix these bugs that we keep seeing more and more of them. and, also, making it so you can add server capacity, so people can actually get on the website, you know, browse plan, and enroll. i mean, as you said, six people on that first day, that's
in effect. >>> "saturday night live" was, as usual, only kidding. they were making a joke about the obama care website debacle. but it turns out they might have been just about right. it was in their opening sketch and parody of health secretary kathleen sebelius. she said the website was only designed to handle six users at a time and it got a laugh on saturday night. then figures came out released by republicans yesterday showing only six americans actually did sign up during the website's entire first day of operations. the obama administration fought back today. they said those figures are not official. they say the pace of enrollment will pick up and new numbers will be released later this month. >>> a story from medicine making news tonight. the march of dimes says premature births in the u.s. have fallen to a 15-year low, mostly because of better health, better health care. but sadly the u.s. still ranks worst among the nations in the developing world. >>> and a man who has always dispensed medical care his way has retired. there may never be anyone like dr. russell donor of rushvi
told us that obama care is more than a website. i agree. it is more than just a website, and the problems run far deeper than a few technological glitches. >> the white house released a progress report on the website fix saying it is improving with users waiting less than a second for wages to load, compared to eight. they are work to go improve application process. wanda summers and ed o'keefe. good morning to you both. thanks for joining me. >> good to see you, alex. >> as the the house and senate negotiators met on tuesday, they are just waiting to reach a deal and we reach the debt ceiling february 7th. will it turn into another 11th hour fight? or might we get something done until we all talk about it minute by minute. >> it is congress. so the 11th hour seems to be when most things get done. what we have heard this week is this is not going to explode into some kind of a grand bargain as perhaps the white house. now, there's hope, it is likely this will be a piecemeal fix to avoid this, to perhaps deal with the across the board sequester cuts. not a lot of optimism
. >>> the obama care website, a technical fiasco under fire again this week. >> it's been down the whole time you've been testifying. the system is down at this moment. >> but one state-run exchange has tried to do business the old-fashioned way. offline. zain asher is here with more. >> reporter: hi, christine. connecticut state exchange access health ct is opening up the first obama care brick and mortar store, a one-stop shop where connecticut's uninsured can go for all their health insurance needs. but like the federal website, things don't always run so smoothly. take a trip down main street in connecticut, and right next to edible arrangements, you'll pass a storefront that has the locals intrigued. >> we have a lot of different questions from individuals because it's new. >> reporter: a retail store set up by connecticut state exchange dedicated solely to all things obama care. >> it's complicated. and so we want to make sure that people know what the new law really says and how it affects them. >> reporter: think of it as the first brick and mortar version of an online state exchange. man
thing that worked was obama's golf swing. once the website gets fixed, the media's going to say, everything's fine. that's where the republicans have to start saying, no, it's not just about the website. the website was 1 of 17 problems. >> hold on, you brought up max baucus. can i play max actually doing that nursery rhyme? hit it, max. >> let's just see how much this can be put together. how much humpty dumpty can be fixed in the next month. if it looks like humpty dumpty's not getting back together, maybe we should start thinking about delaying the penalties. >> what was it, all the king's horses and all the king's men? >> and all the liberals couldn't put d.c. back together again. >> as soon as they fix the website, it's a -- >> i haven't, it's kind of shoes. >> the other shoe drops. we realize 90% of the people logging on, who l enrolling, are enrolling for medicaid, not obama care. when they realize, it's taking money out the system, not putting it in. enrolling it in obama care is putting money in the system. 95% are going to be taking out one. this thing is doomed for fa
card on the obama care website. is it too soon to diagnose long term? and the start of this first saturday morning in november, we are feeling the excitement. we are counting down to election day 2013. polls will be opening less than 72 hours from right now. we are also learning a whole lot more of what happened behind the scenes during the last presidential election. new juicy details on the campaign change in the campaign. one potential contender is in hot water this week for plagerism. what exactly did rand paul say? where was it said before? most importantly, will there be long-term fallout for rand paul going forward? today on up against the clock, very exciting, we inaugurate the legends division. our first congressional slate of contestants. stick around for that. first, this weekend marked one full month since the launch of the obama care website october 1st. >> that rollout we can safely say has been an absolute disaster for the obama administration both in terms of image and impact, all for the very simple reason the website has not worked. the driving principle behind t
disagree. obama care cannot be reduced to the website. and in many ways it already has been successful. all the people who were not in the health caroline who are in it now, it's been successful for them. all the people with preexisting conditions who get covered, it's successful for them. even the people who have been forced to take new plans that are now cheaper and actually fit consumer protection standards, it's better and functional for them. so obama care is working in many ways, but this website is a mess. the obama administration has to get it right by 30th. but i think they will. but i think it's extremely slippery logic to think ha somehow the website didn't work for the first 30 days or first few weeks that obama doesn't doesn't work. if the website had worked perfectly, would the right be suddenly saying obama care makes sense? universal health care is a good idea. of course not. >> you think this makes it easy. the fight -- >> yeah. >> -- on whether this health care plan really has merit has just been made easy for the naysayers? >> low-hanging fruit. >> so let's talk about leg
down today on the problems that be have plagued the obama care website with senator dan coats of indiana delivering the weekly gop response. >> too many americans still cannot even access the online exchanges and for the few that have, their experiencing sticker shock. the president told us that obama care is more than a website. i agree. it it is more than just a website and the problems run far deeper than a few technological glitches. >> well, the white house released a progress report late friday on the website fix saying it is improving with users now waiting an average of less than a second for pages to load compared to eight seconds in the first few weeks. teams are working to improve the application process and increase system speed and efficiency. another round of fixes is planned for this weekend. in fact, i'm taking a look at a note being told from 9:00 p.m. tonight till 9:00 a.m. tomorrow morning, the website will be down and it will be fixed at that point. highway the online fixes may be coming, there's damage to the program's image. that has yet to be repaired. h
of obama care's website, representative david mckinley of west virginia knew what he wanted. >> i haven't heard one of you apologize to the american public. are apologies not in order? i've just -- i've not heard the words "i'm sorry" or "i apologize." i don't understand why there's not an apology. but, i apologize. i haven't heard that from any one of the four of you. >> he got it. >> i want to apologize to you that the website has not worked as well as it should. >> you deserve better. i apologize. >> considerate, appropriate, and futile. the apology didn't squelch the partisan tirades or quench the republican thirst for revenge, their outrage that the affordable care act, that is, obama care, even got this far. but it did provoke some of us to wonder, isn't it fair to also expect at least a tiny bit of remorse, just a morsel of apology, from the republicans? as npr's astute health care reporter julie rovner reminded us recently. >> when it became clear that hhs would need more money to build the federal exchange than had been allocated in the original law, republicans in congress ref
